Conterno Fantino was founded by the present owners in 1982. Claudio Conterno and longtime friend Guido Fantino shared bodly innovative ideas, with a solid basis in classic vineyard management. In 1994, they built a new, state-of-the-art winery high up in Monforte d'Alba, within the Bricco Bastia terroir and this became the heart of their estate. Scenically located with a view of the entire Alpi Piemontesi range, it includes vinification and maturation areas, here, technology and vinicultural know-how play fundamental roles. However, the Conterno Fantino philosophy is firmly based on meticulous vineyard management, for great Piemontese wine starts in the vineyarde. The Barbera d'Alba is a deep ruby red, tending to garnet on ageing. Fruity and herby on the nose, with hints of ripe cherries. Intense, warm palate, with marked acidity and a long finish. The Wine Advocate Antonio Galloni quotes "The tasty 2005 Barbera d’Alba Vignota has often been one of my house wines. It is an attractive, fresh Barbera with plenty of plump, vibrant fruit and an engaging personality. Initially the oak appears to dominate the wine’s balance so readers may want to open this wine a few hours in advance. Anticipated maturity: 2007-2011. Score: 88. April 2007.
